Tried and Tested: Starbucks Card Mobile App

Testing Out the Starbucks Card Mobile App, New Today

Starbucks Card Mobile App

It was only a matter of time: this morning, Starbucks launched a new mobile app that enables customers to pay for any food or beverage using the technology of a smartphone.

The Starbucks Card Mobile App is designed for iPhones, the iPod Touch, and the BlackBerry and should work at 7,500 locations in the US, including the stores inside Target.

I found it worked efficiently as promised. It's a more convenient — and even better, card-free — way to pay, but I wished it'd been integrated into the existing Starbucks app, as opposed to being a separate download altogether.
